The great escape

Matthew Krizsan of Ontario, Canada, managed to avoid near death as a oncoming lorry jack-knifed through the motorway barrier. Talking to CTC Toronto, he said, “everything seemed to slow down and I think all those years playing video games as a kid paid-off.”

Not only did Matthew manage to expertly maneuvre out of harm’s way but he even filmed the unbelievable event with a dashboard mounted camera! The video below shows how the truck ploughed through the barrier, missing a fatal accident by mere inches due to Matthew’s quick reflexes.

48-year-old lorry driver, Bahadar Bassi, has since been charged with careless driving.
